What are cookies?
Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a website. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a
user's web browser on the user's hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that website
by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user's transactions on related web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from web page to web page
and to complete commercial transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.
How do we use information we collect from cookies?
We use website browser software tools such as cookies and web server logs to gather information about our website users' browsing activities, in order to constantly improve
our website and better serve our customers. This information assists us to design and arrange our web pages in the most user-friendly manner and to continually improve
our website to better meet the needs of our customers and prospective customers.
Cookies help us collect important business and technical statistics. The information in the cookies lets us trace the paths followed by users to our website as
they move from one page to another. Web server logs allow us to count how many people visit our website and evaluate our website's visitor capacity. We do not use these
technologies to capture your individual email address or any personally identifying information about you.
Sharing information with affiliates
Occasionally we may make our mail list available to other quality mail order companies. We take measures to select product or service providers that are responsible
and afford privacy protections to their customers. However, we cannot make any representations about the practices and policies of these companies. If you do not wish to
receive other mailings or do not want to receive our mailings, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or
toll-free at 1-866-533-5800 (7:00am-4:00pm, Monday-Friday, HST).
How do we secure information transmissions?
When you send confidential personal credit card information to us on our website, a secure server software which we have licensed encrypts all information you input
before it is sent to us. The information is scrambled en route and decoded once it reaches our website.
Other email that you may send to us may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures will be in place prior to your transmitting the information. For that reason,
we ask that you do not send confidential information such as Social Security or account numbers to us through an unsecured email.
How do we protect your information?
Information Security. We utilize encryption/security software to safeguard the confidentiality of personal information we collect from unauthorized access or disclosure and
accidental loss, alteration or destruction.
Employee Access, Training and Expectations. Our corporate values, ethical standards, policies and practices are committed to the protection of customer information. In general,
our business practices limit employee access to confidential information, and limit the use and disclosure of such information to authorized persons, processes and transactions.
What About Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information?
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights.
What about other websites linked to our website?
